This bumper gift book for beginners is full of practical advice and step-by-step exercises on drawing a wide range of popular subjects – wildlife, people, the countryside and buildings.

Drawing for Beginners covers all the essential aspects of drawing, starting with advice on the various drawing media – from pencils and pens to charcoal, pastel, pen and wash, and conté – and explaining how they can be used to achieve different effects. Other sections look at topics such as proportion, composition, light, tone and texture. All the techniques are very clearly and simply described, providing an ideal introduction to drawing for the complete beginner.
